Road to redemption! Inter will take on Rolando Maran’s Genoa side away from home this weekend. A bitter taste from a disappointing loss to Milan and a draw against Gladbach may still linger among the players. But Inter will need to put the emotions behind them and come out with a bold front.
Antonio Conte said in his press conference “We need to give 110% to achieve good results and produce good performances.”
We will try to take the game to our opponents, and no side has dominated us or been superior to us. This is our mentality, and we’ll carry this forward in order to become solid and successful again.”
It seems like Conte will demand a serious response from his team. COVID-related absences and injuries are still haunting Conte, but he still has a great quality of players to put up against Genoa.
